Pae­dophile’s 5 days’ worth of abuse films

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

A PAE­DOPHILE who down­loaded more than half a mil­lion images of chil­dren be­ing abused and al­most five days of video footage was jailed yes­ter­day.

When po­lice con­fronted Bryan Reid, 46, over the in­de­cent images, rang­ing from ba­bies up to girls of 15, he con­fessed. El­gin Sher­iff Court heard he said: ‘I’m the one who is in­volved. I al­ways knew I would get caught.’

Sher­iff Chris Dixon said: ‘Given the grav­ity of the of­fence I see no al­ter­na­tive but to im­pose a cus­to­dial sen­tence.’

Reid, from Buckie, Mo­ray, was jailed for 22 months. He ad­mit­ted tak­ing, per­mit­ting or mak­ing in­de­cent images of chil­dren and pos­sess­ing them.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Carla Breen said: ‘Reid is a de­praved in­di­vid­ual who had no con­sid­er­a­tion for the un­speak­able and hor­rific abuse the vic­tims in this case had en­dured.’
